The Quilt Museum and Gallery hosted a fantastic two day Retreat Weekend on 13/14 November which was enjoyed by members from several branches of the EG as well as some non-members.
Tracy Franklin taught a day of Crewel Work and a day of Goldwork techniques with a choice of designs. A sandwich lunch was included as part of the package and, of course, excellent company. We had time to look at "The Freedom to Stitch" exhibition and browse in the Museum Shop. Everyone learned lots and achieved much.
